Any fantasy football manager that draft D.J. Moore in 2019 cashed in on his incredible stats. His mid-to-late round Average Draft Position and 87 catches for 1,175 yards from a year ago made the Panthers receiver one of the best picks of the 2019 season. Heading into 2020, fantasy football players are looking to draft Moore much earlier compared to last season, but can Moore evolve into a true WR1? Sports Illustrated’s fantasy football analyst Shawn Childs did some amazing research on what point threshold a receiver needs to hit to be considered a WR1. Childs looked at the Top 12 receivers from the last four years and calculated their total fantasy points, average fantasy points per game, and the drop-off in points between a WR1 and WR2. Childs was joined by AllPanthers editor Schuyler Callihan to discuss Moore’s projections and player ranking for the 2020 season.
